You’re welcome. You’re definitely not conflating or stealing any thunder from the current issues at hand. People seem to have no capacity to view matters systemically, or palate more than 1–2 victimized subgroups at a time. More than that and people feel the need to defend why some of the people aren’t actually victims. There are not enough gay men to speak out boldly on the matter. The government trend now is trans victimization due to the rise (or more publicized) death rates of trans women across the nation. Seems our government can’t multi-task well either.

We all are out here just fighting for ourselves when it’s not our turn to get Uncle Sam’s help. In the meantime, keep talking about it Sam, there is a need and an audience for it.
